“We had a tough break in the first game against a team that is playing really well right now,” said NPCC Head Volleyball Coach Alexa McCall. “I was pleased that we came in on the second game and won in three. We have a big week coming up and hope to continue our growth.” The Knights are now 11-8 on the season. The games in Dodge City kicked off another string of road games for the Knights. They are up Tuesday in Columbus, where they will take on the Central Community College Raiders at 6 p.m.
